Now we know that shopping here is great because there is not the confusion of shopping in town and even if there is not the large choice you’re used in groceries and supermarkets, here you can be sure that all ingredients and products are very well chosen.
There are so many places with delicious products to cook or with ready made dishes.
Of all the nice shops we must immediately name two so similar as based on the family, a typical Italian familiar business. What does this mean? Sincere concern for the customer and product knowledge!
This was the very first store we entered twenty years ago when we moved to Chianti .They have everything, but really everything in such a really small “negozietto” ( little shop). Must: pecorino, anchovies and focaccia with tomatoes. Without forgetting wines and balsamic vinegars !
Driving then into Radda, let’s encounter a shop a little ‘bigger’, but always with the same home style: Porciatti. Luciano always there, his sister Anna , his wife Simonetta and sons Riccardo and Francesco
Fantastic grocery and wines. Must: prepared sauces, olives and a wide selection of cheeses and cold cuts
Let’s ask for tonno di Radda (it’s a cold meat ) and hot bread sticks . And a great choice of wines, ask for Riccardo.
.When Luciano will ask you “which is the most beautiful town in the world ?” ,answer “Radda “ and you’ll make him happy !
